According to the Washington Post the federal prosecutor from Missouri, who bumped heads with the White House over his failure to prosecute unwarranted charges of voter fraud, was temporarily replaced by a Justice Department attorney who aggressively worked to criminalize activists for voter registration efforts.

The gutters are clogged with the dead
The ones who couldn't join in
The others refusing to sing
The ones who are losing their voice
The ones who've forgotten the tune.

Excerpt "God Bless America," Harold Pinter, January 2003

Preceeding generations had every reason to believe those following them would step into the breach and continue the vigil over this nation's Constitutional freedoms and, if necessary, fight to preserve them. They believed like George Washington warned -- "Government is a "force; like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action." And they remembered from generation to generation. Unfortunately, those following our generation will have no such luxury.

OK ... but don't you think that many Iraqi leaders have charted
The months Bush has spent in Crawford since this war started?

Don’t kid yourself---Karl Rove was up to his neck and his back teeth were drowning in this U.S. Attorney scheme, and while fraud may be at the heart of it all, it isn’t the “voter” kind of fraud!  These guys make organized crime look like a child’s game! There isn’t anything brilliant about the act of committing crimes!  And frankly, Alberto Gonzales’ culpability is abhorrent; when you can’t trust the “top cop” for God’s sake who then can you trust!  There’s more than one frog in this bunch of crooks to handcuff and march off to jail!!!

Leaving no doubt that the war in Iraq has no end, Bush has instructed his toady generals to proclaim that the surge of troops must continue through at least the beginning of next year. By then of course, we most likely will have gone through several charades where Democrats send forth funding bills with accountability restrictions while Bush continues to veto anything and everything that might have to do with compromises to end the fiasco and sectarian civil war in Iraq.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

President Bush and top Republican leaders have been ignoring the advice of our generals for years on Iraq and Afghanistan. Now the top House Intelligence Committee Republican is rejecting the advice of our generals about how to deal with the implications of global warming on national security.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

General Batiste, I salute you and your honesty!  You are an outstanding example of what America should be, you are a soldier first and foremost, and that sir is outstanding!  Thank You, would that others be as candid! If only George Bush’s hand picked Generals on the ground were as concerned about our troops and America as they are about personal advancement, the whole world would be a better place!!!
